As we age, our skin naturally loses its elasticity and volume, leading to the appearance of deep wrinkles, dark circles, and other signs of aging.

At Ethos Aesthetics + Wellness, we offer under eye fillers, a cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate your facial features and restore a youthful appearance.

What are Under Eye Fillers?

Under eye fillers are dermal filler injections administered under the lower eyelids to reduce the signs of aging in that area. They work by filling in hollows, wrinkles and lines under the eyes, counteracting volume loss that makes under eye circles and bags more prominent.

The most common type of under eye filler uses hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that naturally occurs in the skin. When injected under the eyes as a dermal filler, it attracts and binds to water molecules, which plumps up the skin and fills wrinkles from within.

Some of the most common hyaluronic acid-based fillers used for under eye rejuvenation include:

Hyaluronic Acid-Based FillersVariationSpecific Use
JuvedermJuvederm VolumaCheek and under eye rejuvenation

RestylaneRestylane LyftUnder eye circles and lines
Restylane-LUnder eye circles and lines

Other types of fillers that can be used for under eyes are:

The procedure involves a dermatologist or aesthetic specialist injecting hyaluronic acid gel under the lower eyelids using a very fine needle. The injections are placed strategically along lines and in hollows under the eyes to fill them out from the inside.

The results of under eye fillers are intended to be subtle improvements. They can reduce the appearance of under eye circles and bags, slightly lift the lower eyelids and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. This helps create a more well-rested, youthful look under the eyes.

The filling effects of hyaluronic acid under eye fillers typically last between 6 to 12 months before touch-ups are needed. As the body naturally breaks down the hyaluronic acid over time, the volume loss and wrinkles under the eyes may reappear.

Benefits of Under Eye Fillers

Under eye fillers offer a range of benefits. These include:

  • Reduce the appearance of dark circles and under eye bags. By filling in hollows and adding volume under the eyes, fillers can effectively minimize the prominence of dark circles and bags.
  • Smoothen wrinkles and fine lines. The added fullness from fillers under the eyes helps fill wrinkles and creases from within, smoothing their appearance.
  • Lift and support the lower eyelids. Under eye fillers can help counteract the effects of herniated fat pads and volume loss, slightly lifting droopy eyelids.
  • Improved contour and definition. By filling out hollows in an even manner, fillers redefine the transition zone between the lower eyelid and cheek area for a sculpted contour.
  • More youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Overall, the effects of under eye fillers – reducing bags, circles, lines and adding lift – can make the under eye area look several years younger.
  • Relatively quick and simple procedure. Under eye filler injections take about 15-30 minutes and require minimal downtime with few restrictions after the treatment. 
  • Subtle and natural-looking results. When done correctly by an experienced provider, under eye fillers enhance the contours of the lower eyelids in a subtle yet effective way. The fillers work by enhancing your existing facial features, not altering them.
  • Temporary nature. Since hyaluronic acid fillers dissolve over time, there is no permanence to under eye filler treatments. This allows patients flexibility to space out treatments as desired.
  • Non-surgical. You don’t have to go under the knife to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore facial volume. With less downtime, you can return to your daily routine almost immediately, with only minor precautions to follow.

The Under Eye Filler Procedure

The under eye filler procedure at Ethos Aesthetics + Wellness is designed to be as comfortable and efficient as possible. Before the procedure, you’ll have a confidential consultation with one of our qualified injectors. They will assess your skin, discuss your goals, and determine the type of filler that would be best suited for you.

Specifically, our procedure involves the following steps:

  1. We will cleanse the skin under your eyes with an antiseptic cleanser to remove any makeup, oil or dirt. This ensures a smooth injection experience.
  2. A topical numbing cream will be applied to the skin beneath your lower eyelids. This allows at least 15 minutes for the anesthetic to take effect and minimize any discomfort during the injections.
  3. Once your skin is adequately numb, we will begin administering the hyaluronic acid filler injections under your lower eyelids using thin needles or cannulas.
  4. Specific areas that require filling out such as your tear troughs, hollows and wrinkle lines will be targeted. The filler will be injected in small amounts at multiple points for a diffused, natural look.
  5. After completing the injections, we will gently massage the skin under your eyes to help spread the filler material and ensure an even distribution. This helps sculpt a smooth, subtle contour.
  6. After the procedure, we will apply cold compresses or gel masks to minimize any swelling and bruising you may experience. We recommend applying ice packs to the area to help reduce any swelling.

Maintaining Your Results

The results of under eye fillers can last anywhere from 6 to 18 months, depending on the type of filler used and your body’s individual metabolism.

Numbing cream used before under eye filler injections typically takes 15-20 minutes to take full effect and minimize discomfort during the procedure.
